Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton could be on the hot seat in 2018 after two straight down seasons, in the opinion of ESPN.com's David Newton. Newton has a lot of expectations in 2018 with new offensive coordinator Norv Turner in town. It'd be a huge shock if Carolina looked to move on from Newton after this year. After all, he is one of the most dynamic signal callers in the NFL, and he does have more weapons at his disposal in the passing game. Look for Newton to continue to use his legs, but the Panthers will also try to focus more on pushing the ball downfield through the air. Newton could easily have a big year.
Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Norv Turner believes that quarterback Cam Newton can be the most efficient passer in the league. Turner has been impressed with Newton's work ethic and how receptive he is in learning the new offense. Newton is coming off two down years after winning the MVP in 2015, and he'll be in a new system that will focus on more play-action and high-percentage throws. "I see Cam as a guy that can be in the mid- to high-60s in the completion percentage," Turner said. In his career, Newton has a 58.5 completion percentage. With perhaps more efficiency this year, Newton also has a better supporting cast of playmakers around him, so he could be looking at a bounce-back season.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was involved in a car accident with a dump truck on Thursday, but he was uninjured. He was driving a matte black Ferrari F12 when the accident occured. Newton was OK and was seen walking around the car. Newton is a QB1 in fantasy football and makes plays happens with his legs, setting him apart from most other signal callers. He could be better in the passing department in 2018, too, under new offensive coordinator Norv Turner.
